membership of the website

Posted by Fo SAP on October 31, 2019 at 8:30 0 Comments

For information: Anyone can apply to join the website; the applications are looked at to try to ascertain if they are real or spam, and mostly we spot spammers.

However Abiola made a reasonable application and was admitted; that proved to be a mistake.

Please ignore any messages from that person.

Thanks to those who have already contacted us.

We have deleted that person.

Wellington bomber memorial appeal - a fitting success

Many thanks to everyone who helped with the successful appeal.

The total income after we receive the final instalment from Bristol City Council will be £5,173.03. Of this we spent £3,982.87. The cost of the memorial itself, including installation, was £3,932.50.

This will leave us with the sum of £1,190.16 for maintenance and improvement to the memorial site area.

The £1,190.16 will be kept in with the FoSAP current account, but treated as ring-fenced funding.

 

Further information about the Wellington bomber that crashed into St. Andrews Park on 30th April 1941 can be found here

Video footage of the memorial service can be found here:
